Evanta Motor Company is a British coachbuilder with a background of putting together modern replicas of the Aston Martin DB4 GT and other models. The latest car to have inspired them was the beautiful and successful Aston Martin DBR1/2, which back in 1959 was driven to glory by Roy Salvadori and Carroll Shelby at Le Mans.
The project was entirely made by hand and designed to look like a 1:1 scale AirFix kit-style replica of the car. Oh, yes, this is a 20.8-foot long, 11.3-foot high work of art, weighing as much as 1,320 pounds! It contains the whole body shell of the DBR1/2, all four 16-inch wire wheels, two seats with accurate upholstery, a Mota Lita steering wheel, a cap signed by the two famous drivers (Salvadori and Shelby), and a couple other parts.
With every part being numbered like a real AirFix kit, the huge work of art looks ready for assembly. This is a one-off creation and it’s scheduled for sale during the Goodwood Revival Weekend in September. The auction guide price for this stunning piece is £20,000-£30,000 (approx. $31,000-$47,000).
